Pixel Laser Treatments
Pixel Erbium Laser Treatments
The Pixel Laser is a fractional ablative laser that represents the best of both worlds for skin resurfacing: it combines the proven effectiveness of an ablative approach with the patient comfort level and convenience of a non-ablative approach. The new Pixel Laser allows you to go right back to work the same or next day.
The Pixel Laser can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands - a much wider scope than traditional ablative technologies. Designed to treat aged and photo-damaged skin, the Pixel improves the quality and texture of the dermis while it stimulates collagen regeneration.
Helps & Treats:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Acne Scars
- Improving Skin Texture (especially under the eyes)
Skin resurfacing with the Pixel is a gradual process that happens over several treatments, usually one treatment every 4 weeks. A total of 4 treatments are usually recommended, with continued improvement occurring for up to 4 months after the last treatment.
Before & After Photo Series
How Pixel Laser Works On Your Skin
A preprogrammed laser beam passes through the patented Pixel micro optics lens and penetrates the skin. It creates an ablative and thermal effect at the pixel area - a micro-injury - without disturbing the surrounding tissue. Those micro-injured areas start the process of healing as collagen remodels, skin tightens and the skin texture improves.
What Happens After the Treatment?
The patient will experience a mild sunburn sensation for about an hour and then virtually no discomfort. The skin will have a pinkish tone for five to seven days. This is a normal sign that skin is healing deeply. Swelling is mild and generally resolves in two to three days. The patient may apply make-up or shave soon after treatment. Typically patients can return to work the following day.
New epidermal skin develops immediately, within 24 hours. This process of skin repair involves various stages. Your skin will have a bronze appearance that lasts anywhere from three to fourteen days, depending on the treatment level.
Your skin will naturally and vigorously exfoliate as the reorganized epidermal skin replaces dead tissue. Flaking, is similar to that of minor sunburn, but without the associated pain. Use of a moisturizer will mask the appearance of flaking.
You are required to use sunscreen to protect the skin from sun exposure during the healing phase. Applying a moisturizing sun block with an SPF of at least 30-plus is recommended.
